In emails I receive with questions about dating single dads, what most have in common is a general, but often specific, frustration over his ex. In other words, coping with the fear and challenges of that ever ticking time bomb between former spouses.
It’s one thing to be married; it’s quite another to act married. The two are different as the sun from the rain. In a similar way that becoming a father is a thoughtless biological impulse, to act a daddy is sacrificial, spiritual, and above all meaningful.
The recent and earth-shaking announcement that Playboy Magazine, after more than a half century, will stop publishing nudity is perhaps the best illustration to the natural and inescapable consequence of pornography.
